Auckland War Memorial Museum - February 2000

Page 1

Visited the Auckland, New Zealand War Memorial Museum. Their Zero and Spitfire are VERY dimly lighted and are located in a very small room, making photography difficult. I used 800 ASA film pushed to ASA 1600 and a 28-70 zoom lens. The room actually requires a shorter lens, but I don't like to use less than 28mm because of distortion.


Supermarine Spitfire

The Auckland War Memorial Museum only has 2 aircraft. Both of the aircraft are on the second floor. This aircraft is on the left, the Zero is on the right of the main stairway.

The Auckland War Memorial Museum has a V-1 hanging in the right main stairwell. It has seen better days.
